Join us for an exhilarating trip through the most scenic section of Clear Creek. This is a great option for rafters seeking a little more challenge than our introductory whitewater, but it’s still appropriate for physically fit first-timers. You’ll get plenty of excitement on each rapid without the pressure of continuous whitewater.
Our Lower Canyon white water rafting trip takes you straight into the Class IV whitewater of Upper Beaver Falls, Lower Beaver Falls, and The Nixon Rapids. By the time you catch your breath, you’ll be headed into our Class V section of whitewater where you will encounter such famous rapids Guide Ejector, Double Knife, Hells Corner and Terminator.
Blast down the Lower Canyon of Clear Creek and enjoy one of the most continuous sections of whitewater in Colorado – only 30 minutes from Denver! Rush through impressive scenery and even more impressive gradient on this 10 mile run that drops 150 feet/mile through the canyon.
At AVA Rafting & Zipline, we believe you should know what you’re buying and how much you’re going to spend. We believe in added value to make your experience special. We don’t want you to feel “nickel and dimed” when you show up for your trip with us. That’s why we provide wetsuits and splash jackets free of charge on all AVA-run rafting trips. You’ll pay over $20 per person with some other outfitters. On our overnight rafting trips, all camping gear except personal sleeping bag is included. Rock climbing trips and zipline tours also included everything you need. We try our best to prepare you with gear lists and suggested things to bring so that you don’t end up paying for unneeded add-ons.
